Technology is the key that will unlock a brighter future for us all. As a Member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, I am committed to ensuring that innovation continues to expand and enrich our lives without harming our privacy or security.
Science and technology are critical to national security, economic strength, and quality health care. We must make the necessary investments in basic research and science education to ensure that the United States remains the world's leader in technology and innovation.
The technology industry drives our economy, both in Texas and nationally. Technological marvels that once shocked us now seem routine. With the recognition that technology plays an increasingly important role in our lives, my legislative agenda includes a heavy emphasis on science and technology issues. We must ensure that policies designed to promote the tech industry are advanced.
By exploring and researching space, NASA is critical to the economic competitiveness of the United States. It is important to provide funding for NASA to conduct scientific research and develop new technology.
With proper funding, NASA will also be able to continue a robust research program in space science, earth science, and aeronautics.
As a member of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, I have supported measures to expand, refine, and improve NASA. I will continue to be a strong advocate for space sciences and other advanced space research efforts.
